Hi I'm Alicia

I'm a Disney lover, apple juice drinker, native Virginian and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I attend Brigham Young University- Idaho but am currently serving a full time mission in San Jose California! I am an only child and a convert to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was baptized when I was 9, after my mother, to then followed by my great-grandma and then my grandma! I enjoy being outside soaking up the sun, as well as exploring new places. I love going to National Parks and spending time outdoors. I had the wonderful opportunity of working at Walt Disney World for almost a year and loved every second of it.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ is on the earth today. I am a Mormon because it brings true happiness. I am a Mormon because it brings peace, purpose, direction and indescribable joy into my life. I am a Mormon because of my mothers decision to follow the council of the missionaries and the Lords example and get baptized. Her righteous decision has blessed my life and guided me to the decision to get baptized. I know that following the words of the living Prophet, Thomas S. Monson, blesses lives. He guides the Lords church today. I know that keeping the commandments of the Lord is the only way to find true peace purpose, direction and joy in this life. I know the only way to return to my Heavenly Father is through Jesus Christ. He suffered and died on the cross for all of his children so we would not suffer, but have joy. How grateful I am for the Book of Mormon. I know that it is the word of God and since I have read it, I felt it's true words bless my life.

How I live my faith

I have chosen to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I want my life to be one of obedience and purpose. My number one desire in life is to have my life reflect the Lords will. Following Christs example is the best way to live. He is the best teacher and will always lead his children to happiness. I enjoy serving others and have learned that sometimes the best way to serve is though example and more importantly love. Loving all of God's children can be a struggle but brings so much peace and happiness. I have had the opportunity to hold callings in my ward and have really enjoyed getting to know people through serving them. Many have blessed my life through their acts of service as well. Loving someone is the best thing anyone can do.
